Public law in Regional Bar

Chambers of Mark Anderson QC

Philip Rule is the key name to note in public law matters at No5 Barristers Chambers. One key area of his is prison law: in R (Knights) v Parole Board, he represented an prisoner who had completed the tariff of his indefinite sentence for public protection (IPP) in a challenge to the Parole Board's refusal to defer a hearing until he had completed a sex offender rehabilitation programme, or to grant him an oral hearing.
